DuBois. Both helped to establish their own ideals concerning the matter of integration. Each of their writings influence society still today as people struggle with the issues of minority in America. The analysis of Booker T. Washington’s Up From Slavery and W.E.B. DuBois’ “The Souls of Black Folk” can help reader to better understand society’s views towards the acceptance of African Americans, their right to a fair education, and the right to vote.
Both were on the journey to improve African American’s social and political status in America. However, they had different methods for getting what they wanted. Regardless, they were able to aid in ending discrimination and received equal standing in education, labor, acquiring of land, etc.. If it had only been Du Bois fighting for equality, then he would have achieved the fight for equality sooner. On the contrary, Du Bois only provided one view to how African Americans were being treated; Washington had a friendlier approach.
DuBois did not believe that work alone would bring about racial equality. He believed education and the agitation by a black elite that would demand equality would be a more effective means of change. DuBois established the Niagara Movement and helped to found the NAACP. He was determined to prove that the Constitution guaranteed civil and political rights to all Americans, including the Negro.

He rather than work on “self-improvement rather than long range social change (Brinkley).” W. E. B. Du Bois, sociologist and historian and one of the first African-Americans to receive a degree from Harvard. Du Bois accused Washington of limiting segregation and encouraging whites.

In the poem, it says “And in a short, I was afraid”. In this quote it portrays how Mr.Prufrock isn't afraid to show his emotions. In society for a man to show his emotions that would be considered feminine and the man would be looked down upon or seen as lesser. Mr. Prufrock and Nick are very similar because they both aren’t the “Manly” or “Macho” type. Being insecure has many different cover-ups.
The main difference in their approaches was how they interpreted the question of how they should go about the process of integration. Washington was very simple in his advice to his people, suggesting that they go to a vocational school for work education rather than a college for a higher education, and act submissive in the face of adversity. Du Bois was so hard-set on things like civil and voting rights that he called out another black leader in Washington, who he did not thing went far enough and was too complacent in his demands.

In "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" T.S. Eliot portraits the typical twentieth century transformed modern city, which in the eyes of the protagonist, Alfred Prufrock, is marked by alienation, loneliness, paralysis and repression of society. The poem is written in the form of dramatic monologue accompanied by a recurrent use of metaphoric language and repetition of ideas, which reveal Prufrock’s perception of the city while unveiling his persona. Thereby, Prufrock invites his audience to follow him through his self-examination taking us to a trip through the empty city streets, through his fears and his consciousness. The urban setting of the poem is the object of satire.
Alfred Prufrock” was and still is a popular poem of T.S. Eliot’s, his most well known work is The Waste Land, which epitomizes the modern era. He uses the poetic elements of fragmentation and allusions to depict an image of the modern world through perspective of a man finding himself hopeless and confused about the condition of the society (Rhee 4). This poem also does not continue in a linear direction; although it may seem disjointed, these elements coherently communicate what modern society ultimately believes. This pattern is easily found in every aspect of the poem.
